Bath/Bristol/Southampton - Ark of tradition

July 22, 2010

The threat to historic buildings posed by catastrophic floods such as those that wreaked havoc in Cumbria last year is being investigated in a research project involving academics from three universities. The Parnassus study, led by the University of Bath, will predict and monitor the impact of floods and driving rain on older buildings so that they can be protected for future generations. The project, which will also involve experts from the universities of Bristol and Southampton, will use modelling tools to assess the risks of future flooding on heritage sites selected by the National Trust, Historic Scotland and English Heritage.
